    The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them all they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it - from garden seeds to Scripture - is calamitously transformed on African soil.

    Overall

    This is a great example of historical fiction. Entertaining and educating the reader. I learned about a time and place that I had never even wondered about before.

    This book makes me want to join a book club so I can further explore some of the themes. I came away from it wanting to pick a fight with the author over the "treatment" of the female characters. For a book that focused on the lives, thoughts, and dreams of five females, it seems to lack in "girl power." Perhaps this is intentional.
